Mobile & Agile: The Floating Writer’s Survival Kit

by Jessica Dickerson, Vice President of Education & Programs

Agile development is a popular methodology used by software companies. This presentation describes how technical writers can transition to agile development smoothly when they float among several cross-functional project teams. Main topics addressed are as follows:

  • How to transition from waterfall to agile development
  • How to gain clout and presence on cross-functional teams
  • Release planning in agile development from a writer’s point of view
  • Iteration planning in agile development from a writer’s point of view
